We went to look at a piece of land for some friends this weekend, and surprised a cottonmouth as we made our way through the heavily wooded area. It was sunning itself beside a pond, and it was so startled when we unexpectedly came around the bend that it actually jumped. Then it slid hurriedly into the pond, and I got this great picture of it swimming away, with the clouds reflected in the water.
